Lawyer and would-be PN leader Adrian Delia has filed his fifth libel case against blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia in the space of one week, as allegations about complicity in laundering the earnings of prostitution racket in Soho continue to be published on her blog.

The libel, the fifth in as many working days, was filed after Caruana Galizia posted a blog article in which she suggested that Delia took “a sizeable cut” from the proceeds of a number of brothels in return for laundering the rest through his Jersey bank account.

The article was published yesterday evening after MaltaToday published an in-depth analysis of a number of documents that came into its possession, which indicate that Delia, as well as current Minister Chris Cardona had been directors of the company which rented out the properties to the prostitution racket, and had resigned their posts shortly after it was raided by police.
